    Fix profile feedback with -jN and add profile-fast · 066dd263

    Profile feedback always failed for me with -jN. The problem
    was that there was no implicit ordering between the profile generate
    stage and the profile use stage. So some objects in the later stage
    would be linked with profile generate objects, and fail due
    to the missing -lgcov.
    
    This adds a new profile target that implicitely enforces the
    correct ordering by using submakes. Plus a profile-install target
    to also install. This is also nicer to type that PROFILE=...
    
    Plus I always run the performance test suite now for the full
    profile run.
    
    In addition I also added a profile-fast / profile-fast-install
    target the only runs the performance test suite instead of the
    whole test suite. This significantly speeds up the profile build,
    which was totally dominated by test suite run time. However
    it may have less coverage of course.
